Karneval der Kulturen, Carneval of Cultures Berlin 2013!

Wednesday, May 8th, 2013

Karneval der Kulturen (c) Axel Kuhlmann

This yearly festival is all about celebrating different cultures and dance and party together. Just as every other year, Berlin is going to proudly present the Carnival of Cultures, which will take place from the 17th till the 20th  of May. A four-day street-festival, the Parade (on the 19th of May) and various parties throughout the whole city will make the Pentecost weekend to a real multi-cultural summer event.
The street party takes place onf Friday, from 4pm till midnight, on Saturday/Sunday from 11am till Midnight and on Monday from 11am till 7pm.
Where? At the Blücherplatz, Blücherstrasse, Zossener straße and the Waterlooufer, in Berlin Kreuzberg
Street procession: On the day of the big parade, about 4.400 participants organized in 76 groups will change Kreuzberg into a sea of colors and ideas.
About 700.000 visitors are expected to celebrate Berlin’s diversity along the route.
The street procession focuses on the cultural richness of Berlin, and also highlights the often hidden treasures of its international cultural scene. It questions everyday life and politics. Carnival is a combined art form that embraces many aspects of artistic expression. Due to the global migration currents it is multifaceted and of mixed styles.
The Carnival of Cultures is open to everybody and all forms of cultural expression. It is regarded as a platform for a proud expression of hybrid cultural identities, containing traditional and contemporary elements. It includes and attracts all age groups, professional artists and amateurs, people from all walks of life.
The procession takes place on Sunday the 19th of May, from 12.30-21.30. It starts as everey year at Hermannplatz.
There will also be a lot of live music. Listen and dance to the sound of Berlin: four different stages – Bazaár Berlin, Eurasia, Farafina & Latinauta – want to introduce Berlin’s music scene as well as international bands to you.
Stilt-walkers, acrobats and magicians settle on the grassland and invite all visitors to test their own abilities in those fields and practice their skills in creativity.
330 market stalls attract with culinary seducements, arts and crafts and much more.
But it’s more than just a big party – the Carnival of Cultures is a reflection of Berlin‘s cultural diversity. It brings together professional artists and amateurs, young and old, and – furthermore – is a great opportunity for members of Berlin’s ethnic communities to make their cultures visible to Berliners and visitors equally. Whether it’s traditional or modern – every culture gets its chance to add their aesthetic vision to the capital‘s reputation as a vibrant and constantly changing metropolis. Being part of this traditional event has always been an unbelievable experience for both, visitors and participants.The procession takes place on Sunday the 19th of May, from 12.30-21.30. It starts as every year at Hermannplatz.
Another thing that might interest you, there is no entrance fee!

4. Exhibition @ C/O Berlin–> Ron Galella . Paparazzo Extraordinaire

Last call, exhibition is till 26 February 2012

“If someone says ‘no photos!’ then I try not to take any more. However, before he says that I take as many as I can. That’s the game”. Ron Galella

A paparazzo hunt is cunning, harsh and frequently ends painfully. In the worst case bloodily—including broken jaws and lost teeth. For Ron Galella and his undercover activities, no effort or risk was too great. He proceeded like a detective in order to catch the celebrities in the right moment, patient, persistent, shifty. Whether it was Jacqueline Kennedy, Marlon Brando, Greta Garbo, Andy Warhol, Sean Penn, Robert Redford, Muhammad Ali, Madonna, Mick Jagger or Audrey Hepburn—he managed to get them all in front of his lens. His pictures are snapshots rather than portraits. Spontaneous, not staged, and as a result extremely authentic.

On the occasion of the Berlinale, C/O Berlin will show approximately 140 black/white photographs by Ron Galella.

5. Exhibition @ KW Institute for Contemporary Art

“YOU KILLED ME FIRST The Cinema of Transgression  19.02. – 09.04.2012″
Auguststraße 69
D-10117 Berlin

Karen Finley, Tessa Hughes-Freeland, Richard Kern, Lung Leg, Lydia Lunch, Kembra Pfahler, Casandra Stark, Tommy Turner, David Wojnarowicz, Nick Zedd

There will be blood, shame, pain and ecstasy, the likes of which no one has yet imagined.
Nick Zedd

Nightmarish scenarios of violence, dramatic states of mind, and perverse sexual abysses – the films of the Cinema of Transgression that were consciously aimed at shock, provocation, and confrontation, bear witness to an extraordinary radicality. In the 1980s a group of filmmakers from the Lower East Side in New York went on a collision course with the conventions of American society. Transcending all moral or aesthetic boundaries, the low budget films reveal social hardship met with sociopolitical indifference. Sometimes shot with stolen camera equipment, the films contain strident analyses of life in the Lower East Side defined by criminality, brutality, drugs, AIDS, sex, and excess.

Even though the movement has remained largely unknown, the Cinema of Transgression has been a significant influence for later generations of artists.

YOU KILLED ME FIRST at KW Institute of Contemporary Art in Berlin is the first exhibition on the Cinema of Transgression.

Entry only over 18 years

6. Go out for Dinner, there is a fantastic Vegan Food Restaurant closeby our cozy Hostel in Berlin

It is called KOPPS and is located at the Linienstrasse 94, 10115 Berlin
They serve typical German dishes, but everything is vegan!

7.Berlin Wall documentation center

The Berlin Wall Memorial is the central memorial site of German division, located in the middle of the capital. Situated at the historic site on Bernauer Strasse, it will eventually extend along 1.4 kilometers of the former border strip. The memorial contains the last piece of Berlin Wall with the preserved grounds behind it and is thus able to convey an impression of how the border fortifications developed until the end of the 1980s. The events that took place here together with the preserved historical remnants and traces of border obstacles on display help to make the history of Germany’s division comprehensible to visitors.

Berlin!

Berlin!

VIBEZ.

Under a circus-tent ceiling, ufaFabrik creates a theatre without walls in a secluded corner of its Tempelhof complex. This season, it is hosting the unusual international dance theatre and acrobatics spectacle “VibeZ.” . The arists come from Asia, the Caribbean, South America, Europe and they met in Berlin: young dancers, musicians and acrobats experience the “VibeZ.” – the feelings, the atmosphere and the moods of the city – and put these experiences on stage using the resources of their art. With breakdance, acrobatics, hip hop, beatboxing and tightrope performing, the young street artists create an emotional and dynamic show. Young, cheeky, multicultural … and full of energy: “Divinely gifted bodies” was the enthusiastic reaction of the press.

When? Thursday 29th , Friday 30th and on Saturday the 31st of July at 8.30pm

5.TEMPORäRE KUNSTHALLE BERLIN-SQUATTING – REMEMBERING, FORGETTING AND OCCUPYING

In squatting, Tilo Schulz and Jörg van den Berg articulate an exhibition practice which emphasizes the presence and the actual experience of the artwork in the exhibition in terms of display as art mediation. squatting brings together works of art that address remembrance in thematic and structural terms, as well as pieces thatdeal with experiences o f places, situations, and people. Hence squatting establishes a direct connection between the Temporäre Kunsthalle and its location (the Schloßplatz) as a place that is permanently exposed to ideological appropriations.

ON RAGE: Film, Exhibition & Discourse

Wednesday, March 10th, 2010

Berlin 2010

Berlin 2010

At Haus der Kulturen der Welt… 14 march-09 may: Opening 13 march

This event is exploring the culture of rage. Considering, is there a new kind of rage, emerged out of all kinds of economic and political crises and states of emergency?
ON RAGE will take a closer look at both the deconstructive part of rage aswell as at its transformitive potential into something positive and constructive.

The program constantly shifts its focus by allowing genres to interplay: The exhibition formulates artistic statements that intervene in the discussions, readings and talks. We are dealing here with sublimated, condensed rage. Lectures held every Wednesday draw up a contemporary phenomenology of this primary effect within a political, philosophical, and postcolonial context. Films take on the subject of rage associatively and performances open up other approaches to the artistic and theoretical positions. Visitors have the unique opportunity to explore their own creative potential in “Rage Rooms” . Here they can take a look at the works of the exhibition in the light of Berlin’s social issues. The program concludes with a Rage Summit“: dialogues, open discussions and ReReadings of key texts – from Bataille to Che Guevara and Darwin to Sloterdijk.

With works by: Shoja Azari (Iran), Jimmie Durham (USA), Regina José Galindo (Guatemala), Tadeusz Kantor (PL), Klara Lidén (S), Michael Rakowitz (USA), Reloading Images (Iran / USA, I / UK, Iran / D, D, Iran / USA, Egypt), Seher Shah (USA) and a specially developed “Discursive Architecture” by ifau (D).
Curated by Valerie Smith

More information on the exhibition:
Eight artistic statements protesting intolerable conditions, ranging from the “dead” classroom by the extraordinary Polish artist Tadeusz Kantor to Jimmie Durham’s unmasking of America’s founding myth in “Building a Nation”, to Regina José Galindo’s opening performance: her own gold teeth become the metaphor not only for the exploitation of Latin America, but also call forth associations of the brutality of the “Third Reich”. The works take on today’s global reality – not by reflecting or reproducing it, but by distilling its essence. Thus, Michael Rakowitz, son of Iraqi-Jewish immigrants to the U.S., creates from Arab packaging materials a replica of the Ishtar Gate (“May the Arrogant Not Prevail”), which in present-day Iraq has turned into a tourist attraction for American soldiers. A papier-mâché copy of a copy, since the “real” Ishtar Gate has been located in Berlin since 1930. The work is one of four commissioned works created especially for this exhibition.
(text:hkw.de)

The opening event takes place this saturday, march the 13th, at 6pm and is free of admission. Here you´ll find works by: Shoja Azari (Iran), Jimmie Durham (USA), Regina José Galindo (Guatemala), Tadeusz Kantor (PL), Klara Lidén (S), Michael Rakowitz (USA), Reloading Images (Iran / USA, I / UK, Iran / D, D, Iran / USA, Egypt), Seher Shah (USA) and a specially developed “Discursive Architecture ‘by IFAU (D);

The evening opens with a performance and artisitc talk by Regina Jose Galindo. Followed by more artist talk by Michael Rakowitz. A documetary film starts at 8pm. A re-reading at 9.30pm, Birol Ünel reads Allen Ginsbergs Howl

Every Monday the EastSeven Berlin Hostel cooks for her guests. The food is simple, but good (and for free), the atmosphere is friendly and the night still young…


  • CULTURE AT HAMBURGER BAHNHOF!

“A troop of monkeys celebrate a feast, a panther wanders across a snowy Alpine landscape and a pack of white wolves surround a buffalo dripping blood in a manicured French garden. At first glance Walton Ford’s large-scale animal watercolour paintings evoke prints by French and British colonial-era illustrators from the 19th century. After closer examination however, they reveal a pictorial universe of complex and disturbing allusions. The various tigers, lions, birds and primates that populate the life-size pictures appear as vivacious protagonists locked in allegorical struggles. The resulting combination of historical fact, natural history inquiry and surreal imaginings give rise to Walton Ford’s brilliant ‘Bestiarium’.”  from 23.01 till 24.5.2010

This squat-turned-art-center boasts art galleries, clubs and bars on every floor. Tonight Cafe Zapata (bottom floor) hosts a session of refined electronic music. Tacheles: Oranienburger Str. 54-56

4)HAUS MUSIK AUS GENF MIT BORN BJORG

@ Bergstübl/ Invalidenstr. 151, 10115 Berlin

It has been now three years since Born Bjorg works the crowd on the turntables around Switzerland and beyond. Holding a residency at Geneva’s famous Le Zoo (Usine) since early 2008, the young and talented duo has already shared the bill with artists such as Lee Curtiss, Seth Troxler, Christian Burkhardt, Nick Curly or Crowdpleaser (among others) in notorious clubs in Switzerland (Weetamix, La Ruche) and abroad (Social Club, Paris).

Their music witnesses a strong addiction to the groove and a reverent love for new and old school underground dance music, blending jackin’ house and techno as well as soul or funk altogether.
